Apologies if I've posted in the wrong place btw, there's no generic/general Eurovision forum so I didn't know where to put it.

Personally I'm done with this idea already. It seems like it's inspired by an American/Irish/British idea of the contest as some weird forum of bizarre music with no connection to modern music tastes, and it will only feed stereotypes of the contest. I'm hoping to be proven wrong.

I probably will watch it with my mum, who is not too tolerant of Eurovision and I'm trying to keep an open mind but I understand people's concerns.

I don´t have Netflix, so I can´t watch it, and even then the presence of Will Ferrell is enough for me to dislike it. And I really don´t understand why such a good actress like Rachel McAdams is appearing in such a cringy trash!!?? :unsure:

Yeah the trailer confirms this is going to be bad. But am I still going to watch it because there's nothing else going on 🤷‍♀️ Could still be a lot of fun

Tumblr, mostly.
Most of the humour appears to have been derived by Americans Speaking In Funky Foreign Accents and well... bad idea, just like this movie.

In a year where the EBU refused to give us a real contest and broadcast a "here's what you could hacve had" I think Netflix will give us something decent. 2020 has been a rather shit year for everyone so I think the film is a great idea. Plus it will bring a new audience to the contest and possibly path the way for USAVision

Don't be insulted just because Americans are "making fun" of eurovision... Enjoy the humor and hope that many new people will get to know this contest, even if it is through stereotypes only :D

Okay, I voted HATE IT before I saw the trailer. I can't stand Will Farrell, don't find him funny. But the trailer was nice. I might give it a watch then say I hate it after so that it's fair.

I've seen worse tbh. Story itself is not bad, but needs revision, and it should be developed better. It is a weird mix of genres, it is mainly romantic comedy and there were funny moments, but a lot of time the jokes were flat, unfunny and bad. Eurovision is treated so-so, there are weird and avoidable inconsistencies like semi-final voting, rule breaking, that ending speech etc. All of the songs except the Katiana's and the last one are painful and pure mockery. The Song-A-Long was fantastic tho, it was such a delight and I wish there were more moments like that.
